Lest We Forget


Mean and moody clouds seen from the Cove on a November Saturday with the tide well in.


Much brighter weather on the Sunday.








These autumnal images come from a walk in Eaves Wood and then down to Woodwell on Armistice Day. Later we we were back at the Pepperpot, where a beacon was lit, one of many around the country, to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.

  1. I don’t comment nearly enough on here, Mark, but your picture of the back-lit hedge is wonderful. I rarely miss your posts. Thank you for providing a little piece of heaven on the web.

      Thanks Alan, Happy New Year to you! I’m glad you mentioned that photo: I like it too, but almost didn’t include it, because….well, I’m not sure why. I know that you are a regular visitor here and am not at all offended that you don’t comment often, I’m hopelessly behind with my own blog reading and commenting.

      The bonfire was under construction when I was at the Pepper Pot the first time in the day. It was briefly quite a blaze, although we witnessed that from the village, because, it won’t surprise you to learn, we were late setting off. Of course we were. It was done this year due to the centenary, but I think it’s a great idea for future remembrance Sundays. One day I will make it up Gable for the service up there. Well, I think that happens….
